Food 1 is the fifth (assuming read left to right) skill of the French language tree. It consists of six lessons that teach how to describe your food and meals in French.

Tips and NotesEdit

Du, de la, de l' Edit

In French, all objects must have an article. If they would not have an article in English, use these to get the same meaning across. Also, you can use them for uncountable items when you want "some" milk or "some" coffee.

  • I eat (some) meat = Je mange de la viande.
  • I drink (some) coffee = Je bois du café.

Verb ConjugationEdit

Just like in English, most verbs in French are conjugated. In this skill, we see the verb manger, "to eat", conjugated. Many verbs in French that end in -er are conjugated in the exact same way:

English Personal Pronoun Ending manger
I -e je mange
You (singular, informal) -es tu manges
He/She -e il/elle mange
We -ons nous mangeons*
You (plural and/or formal) -ez vous mangez
They -ent ils/elles mangent

*Mangeons has an additional -e- in between the "g" and the ending so that the "g" is pronounced the same for all forms of the verb.
